    It depends on how you read 14. The claim is that there were Weapons of Mass Destruction. Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) can include up to three types of weapons - chemical, biological and nuclear weapons. It can be one, two or all three of these. So, true if you assume any subset of this make it true. It's false if you think all three have to be part of the WMDs. As far as the other gentleman's comments that none were reality, both biological and chemical weapons were found, but the nuclear warheads were moved to Pakistan, and no more remaining ones were found. Since chemical and biological weapons are also WMDs, then WMDs were found. Unfortunately, ignorance over the term WMD allowed the media to report things inaccurately. That's why it helps to understand the subtleties of language. Your teacher asked an ambiguous question and they would have to provide more info before you could answer it.
